    Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) reviews Taycan Turbo

    I'm right there with you - just over 500 miles...357 watts /mi. No time in Range mode, majority of time in Sport.

    Any Track Activity Yet?

    Thanks...it was more for the experience of having that much power and that low a CG. Not likely a habit - purpose built track options better suited. But the entertainment value of a 4-door sedan blistering through the turns seems pretty high.

    Any Track Activity Yet?

    Thanks. I thought I had looked there, but obviously not closely enough.

    Any Track Activity Yet?

    Planning a track excursion - if not before winter, then in the spring. Curious if anyone has experienced it yet? Trying to figure out tires, specifically - since tracking a car this heavy but this fast seems like it will create reasonably extreme tire stress (particularly sidewalls), even with...

    Taycan charges to 100% despite profile

    In my experience so far... profiles are useless. I've deleted them, and gone to a single timer...which has the car charge to 85% by the time I'd like it to be ready in the morning. So it backs up that time and starts however long before that needed to get to 85%. With profiles, it always...

    What kind of tires on new Taycan?

    great point. I am looking to get the Taycan out on the track (we have a good one fairly close here) once I get through break-in...maybe I'll start another thread with "track?" topic

    What kind of tires on new Taycan?

    My Turbo S arrived with the Continental A/S tires. Will likely swap the Mission-E wheels over to P-Zeros in the spring, unless someone else (Michelin, others?) comes out with a amazing different performance option. Anyone taken Taycan with P-Zeros out onto the track yet?

    NEMA 14-50 position in garage for PMCC

    Wow, didn't even know I was lucky to get one of the "old" longer PMCC cables. Yes, runs a bit warm, but don't have to do electrical gymnastics to plug it in to 1 of 2 charging locations.

    Another 12V issue

    Yup - maybe Porsche has deemed this a 4S-specific issue? Here is the Porsche service screenshot on the campaigns closed for my VIN (with none open) on the Turbo S at least.

    Another 12V issue

    For US folks...I called both the dealer I bought from (Ohio) and local dealer service (Minnesota) to see if I could find out if this is a blanket 12V battery replacement program.

    Another 12V issue

    Thanks for posting- and sorry about that. When did you take delivery of your Taycan? I was just at Porsche Service last week and didn't get the same message (delivery in late July)

    Long-term storage?

    Ha - I'm a bit OCD about checking the Connect app...so that will be a change for me. It's like my kids and snapchat. Also looks like I need to worry more about charging my phone than my car based on current app status screen...

    Long-term storage?

    Thanks for the response - good idea on reducing amperage (I have mine set up at 40A in both the locations I charge on 50A circuits). I also have concerns about putting an indoor/lightweight car cover (have the Porsche one from Suncoast) on with the MCC plugged in. The engineer in me doesn't love...

    Long-term storage?

    Question related to long(er) term storage (1 month+) - leave traction charger plugged in, or no? Porsche sales guy said yes, but that makes me oddly nervous. As someone mentioned, I haven't seen much drain off the 85% target when left for a few days, so I imagine the drain over month+ would be...

    Demonstration / discussion of burmester sound system in taycan turbo

    Agreed. I have top-end B&O setup in an Audi S7 and the Burmester sound is a upgrade. I got lucky in that I wasn’t planning to spec it in my Taycan build, but ended up taking delivery of a car someone else had spec’d with the Burmester option and I’m very happy with it. To be sure it isn’t...

    [US] - Over the Top - the well equipped EV garage…for those that wish to "over do it"…

    Happy coincidence that we had just ripped out a hot tub at the house, so had a free 50A circuit out of 400A service. Ran that to garage and put in the 240V NEMA 14-50 outlet for the mobile charger connect. Same setup at autoplex (where the car spends some of it's time). Have one of the...

    Another 12V issue

    Well, yes- it is possible the Americans are all forgetting to turn off their cars. :). Seriously, though, I suppose it could be that simple....Don’t hold down the button until the cute little taillight graphic goes off, and your 12V system might stay on and drain itself. I would think, though...

    Another 12V issue

    According to local Porsche service folks I don’t have any outstanding updates on my VIN. Although I wouldn’t say I am enthralled with their level of Taycan service knowledge. I took remote delivery of mine from OH dealer - they did do an update on arrival from Germany before shipping to...

    Yet another video showing Taycan beating EPA rated range on the highway and it's not even in summer weather.

    meaning, I haven’t used range mode at all. So, if anything, my experience should be a conservative estimate of real-world range.

    Another 12V issue

    Ok- been scanning other threads and think I have at least a potential cause for my 12V battery drain/shutdown. I was merrily deleting profiles on my app in the evening while the Taycan was plugged in. I had set some profiles up...but with a timer set up every day for 85% at 7:00am via mobile...
